Do you wish to debug?
This is the statement I'm getting more and more and it's driving me nuts.  
What is it?  How do I fix what ever is wqrong with this F'n computer.
thanx

couple of things to try
go to start -->run and type msconfig, go to the startup tab, and uncheck machine debugger (MDM)
also in IE go to tools, internet options, advanced and check "disable script debugging"

something else to try given the problems in your next question combined.

go to control panel - add/remove programs - Microsoft Internet Explorer & Tools & click remove. Of the 3 options presented choose repair & give that a go.

Also try Start-Run-SFC and replace any corrupt system files.  Have your OS CD ready.

You could always try booting to a DOS prompt, and trying the 'ol scanreg /fix.  

Just a thought -

Let me get this right...
I booted to DOS and typed in scanreg /fix.
the machine took a while but it did its thing and I presume, out of it I got a fresh registry with no mistkes.  Is that correct?
If so, does the machine know what programs are on it, so to include them with the regisrty???
Thanks

scanreg /fix only replaces the registry from a backup copy.  It may fix this or it may not.
The worst case scenario is that you back up, reformat, reinstall OS and all programs, and restore the data.
You could also install Windows in a different directory.  You will still have to reinstall all programs but your data will still be there.

Yeah sorry I didn't include what exactly scanreg /fix DID.  I assumed from your previous comments about your knowledge with sfc that you were familiar with it.  I apologize for not notifying you beforehand what it did.

It did the trick.  
Haven't had the problem again.

Also, thanks all.  The reg thing didn't change anything.  I knew about it, but wasn't sure if it laid down a new one (entirely) or ???
